Hey Lily! I just wanted to stop by with some quick crit for you for BBLB Bite Size Challenge #3. J
I think you already know that I think you’re fantastic and uber talented, so I imagine this will be very brief.
Your style is super unique and cool as a whole, and I absolutely live for the way you color! I think my absolute favorite thing here is +this banner because it’s absolutely gorgeous! Everything from the lighting to the composition to the texture use is absolutely perfect. I think this is one of the best examples of work you have in your gallery right now. (Never take it out. Ever. I’ll know if you do.)
Image Quality/Consistent Sharpening
So, one of the tiny things I wanted to point out here is the baby, baby, baby image quality issues I’m seeing here and there. For example, the largest photo of Kim Woo Bin on the bottom +here looks a bit like it was just resized too far past its natural resolution. While I think this image definitely adds to the overall composition and I don’t really have any ideas on what else you’d stick there, I do think that you suffered a bit of a loss in quality in resizing that one a bit too much. I really don’t think it’s SUPER noticeable (I really had to stare at your gallery to find something to critique here, lbr), so I think you would be fine to leave it the way it is, but I would suggest taking a look at it when you have a moment. The same thing happened, I think, with the texture in the background of +this piece as well. That texture in the background is a bit pixelated, and I think it’s also a bit more noticeable than the previous blend I mentioned, unfortunately. L The only thing I could really suggest here would be to find a larger resolution version of the texture, or to find a different texture altogether. You could always resize that texture that’s there now, duplicate the layer and blend it together so that the line at the top spans across the entire blend, but isn’t actually just that one image stretched too far, if that makes sense? If not, just poke me and I’ll try and explain it better. J
One more quick thing I noticed too was a tiny bit of inconsistent sharpening, mainly +here and +here. I plopped this in with image quality because I think they go together a bunch. Just make sure you’re paying attention to the faces of all of your models when you’re done with your filtering/sharpening. On those two pieces in particular, some of the faces are a bit softer than others, so just make sure you’re bumping up the sharpening on those faces that need it. Every image is different, so one or two spots in your graphics may require the little sharpen tool, while others won’t. It’s just up to you to figure all that stuff out. J
Just reeeeeealllly quickly, I notice that you use that same skinny font a ton for your secondary text, so I’d like to see you branch out a bit there and mix it up with a serif font here and there. (Obvs do what I say and not what I do because Calibri for dayssss)
Also, just be careful of your text placement a bit in your banners. In +this, I’m not 100% sold on the text over that stock like that. When you’re working with text over an image (stock or texture) that has a lot of horizontal or vertical lines running through it, or is separated into segments of super different color, I usually try and throw a white or black texture overlay of my choice over that area to give me a clean canvas to work on text-wise. The lines make it a bit hard to read the text, and the natural color blocking in the image makes it hard to read the text on the dark parts, but super easy to read on the light parts. So if you could just smooth that out a bit, I think you’d be fine here. J
You’re great. Idk what else to do with you because you’re amazing. If you have any questions at all, please let me know! <3

I'm just swinging by to leave a bit of holiday love on your gallery.
First off, congrats on the promo! I'm so excited for you!
Second, your gallery is so lovely. Everything in it is so polished and pretty. I love how you use the sort of muted coloring. Like you still use some bright colors, but there's something you do that gives it almost a grunge look, except much sharper and cleaner. (Sorry, I'm doing a terrible job at explaining what I mean.) Anyway, there's a certain je ne sais quois about you're graphics that make them uniquely yours.
I really like your Heart Attack banner. I think the pops of chartreuse against the darker colors works really well and I like how you mixed some white in too. The texture work on it is really nice and I like the images that you chose for it as well.
Wishing you happy holidays and a new year filled with laughter and excitement.
